U2 Perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Speak About Manchester Tragedy

30 years ago, U2 released the iconic The Joshua Tree album, and while they’re currently touring in honor of its anniversary, they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to perform “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”

But before pushing a still seated Kimmel off-stage and setting up for their performance, the band gave us some background on the album’s classic album artwork. The Joshua Tree photographer’s Dutch accent may have even inspired the album’s name. But we don’t want to give too much away. Find out more and watch the performance below!

Before performing the gospel-choir version of the classic song, the Irish rockers shared their love for not only America but also Manchester, praising locals for banding together to help those affected by the tragedy that occurred after Monday night’s Ariana Grande show at the Manchester Arena.

U2 continues to rock stages across America as a part of the Joshua Tree Tour 2017 through July 1.
